Donald Trump

Yesterday we talked about Trump's base. The rabid, redneck, woman-hating bigoted and racist rabble that comprise 99.5% of his rallies. They are an itchy bunch and don't need much provocation to be spurred to physical violence (witness the many fights that occur inside and outside his public events.)

Knowing this, you would think the mean tangerine would exercise care when addressing the teeming horde.

But there he was today, inciting his minions to shoot Hillary Clinton. What -- he was just joking you say? How could we have misinterpreted his words -- "Hillary wants to abolish, essentially, the Second Amendment," he said. "By the way, and if she gets the pick -- if she gets the pick of her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I dunno."

Now that's a knee-slapper...

I cannot recall a political race in modern American history when one candidate joked about murdering his or her opponent. Letting "Trump be Trump" is one thing, but letting him jest about assassinating somebody is another. Can you imagine a President Trump "joking" about shooting Angela Merkel? Or his buddy Vlad?

And now how will the secret service react? Will they amp up their protection of Hillary Clinton? They should, given the nature of his audience. If the Secret Service decides they need to investigate the comments, at least they won't have far to look.
